Welcome to my adventure. This blog started out focused on parenting and school but now that Katie's nearly baked, it's way more about me these days. My experiences, more likely my point of view and good times to share.
Welcome! I'm glad to have you aboard.

Field Trip: Gramma, Katie, GPS and the Rosicrucian Museum

I had to spend the whole day at my client's office today - from 9am to 7:30pm - and so I planned ahead. I asked mom if she'd take Katie on a field trip to the Rosicrucian Museum in San Jose as a follow on to King Tut on Monday.

Mom agreed, I printed out the maps and sent them on their merry way. And I gave them the Nuvi GPS.

I guess the museum is pretty cool. Some of it was repetitive and according to Kate, mom takes way too long looking at exhibits, but they have a real "tomb room" that they both thought was awesome. They also have some mummified animals which got Katie very fired up.

Not Really on "Target"
After the museum, they wanted to run by Target (we don't have one near us) and so they used the GPS to help them get there. Well, ideally they thought they were using the GPS but apparently it was a cluster. They got lost, turned around and nearly decapitated the little man in my GPS that kept saying, "Recalculating!"

I guess they never made it to Target. They managed to find a Kmart and get the hair products we desperately needed! They laughed and cried together along the way. And when I got home, they were totally happy from having spent the day together and sharing the big adventure.

Home School POV: I came home to find Katie making a "book" about Egypt, King Tut and Mesopotamia. She was so excited about it. We also spent the next day working on learning how to use the GPS - so we got a little tech lesson!
